The Clone Roses

The Summer of 2021 saw the return of live events and ‘The Clones’ headlined the iconic Spike Island site on the banks of the river Mersey in front of a sell-out 15,000 strong crowd.

The UK’s leading Stone Roses tribute have been entertaining Roses fans for over two decades and are the longest serving and biggest selling Roses tribute. The Clones are now regarded as one of the UKs premium tribute bands, a list that reserved for very few acts and have been described by Mani himself as “the second-best Stone Roses in the world.” The bands attention to detail is second to none, with the bans acquiring the same clothing, instruments and replicating classic sets from The Roses gig archives.

As well as headlining summer festivals to thousands of Roses fans the band have played the likes of The Isle of Wight Festival, Shiine on Weekender, “A Tribute to Manchester” an annual event headlining to over 2500 at Manchester Academy 1 and regular tour the UKs premium venues including o2 Academy venues in all major cities.

If you’ve never seen the real deal or want to re-live the best gig you’ve been to then “The Clones” will deliver the next best thing!

The Smiths Ltd

The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig in Manchester to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.

“Brilliant Smiths tribute band, they are amazing!” – Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets)
